Description/Abstract:
IN 1972 COMMITTEES OF THE UNITED NATIONS AND THE U.S. NATIONAL ACADEMY OF SCIENCES EMPHASIZED THE NEED FOR ORGAN DOSE ESTIMATES ON THE JAPANE SE ATOMIC-BOMB SURVIVORS. THESE ESTIMATES WERE THEN SUPPLIED BY WORKER S IN JAPAN AND THE U.S., AND THEY WERE USED WITH THE SO-CALLED T65D ES TIMATES OF A SURVIVOR'S RADIATION EXPOSURE TO ASSESS RISK FROM RADIATI ON. RECENTLY THE T65D ESTIMATES HAVE BEEN QUESTIONED, AND PROGRAMS FOR REASSESSMENT OF ATOMIC-BOMB RADIATION DOSIMETRY HAVE BEEN STARTED IN J APAN AND THE U.S. AS A PART OF THIS NEW EFFORT A MATHEMATICAL ANALOGUE OF THE HUMAN BODY ( OR "MATHEMATICAL PHATOM" ), TO BE USED IN ESTIMATI NG ORGAN DOSES IN ADULT SURVIVORS, IS PRESENTED HERE. RECOMMENDATIONS ON ORGAN DOSIMETRY FOR JUVENILE SURVIVORS ARE ALSO PRESENTED AND DISCU SSED.
